Dominique has a passion for teaching and has taught extensively both privately and publicly.

“I love working from life with direct observation because it is tangible and concrete. However, there is something that lies behind the obvious, a sense of mystery and wonder. Whether it is the model in the studio, a stream in woods or a crowded downtown scene, life has a sparkle and shimmer. I love connecting with that and trying to get an expression of it directly in my work. I am always searching for a quality of stillness in my work. There is a profound and serene joy that washes over when the boundary between subject and object is lost. My hope is that my viewers get a sense of this when looking at my work”—Dominique Medici
